    “Here’s a reason to celebrate: a fresh batch of poems by Colin Herd. I don’t know anyone else who can make zing the unexpected proximity of danger and corn on the cob, or for that matter castles and bottoms. Swamp Kiss is a delight to read, a lyric bustle of double understandings, jingles, neologisms, jokes, and bathside musings. Tracing ebullient arcs of thought, these poems revel in the language of everyday stuff, sometimes doleful, other times joyous.”  Lila Matsumoto
